    ALEGRIA is a truly remarkable return to form for Wayne Shorter. Despite a number of missteps in the years since his acclaimed early-'60s releases JUJU and SPEAK NO EVIL, the revered tenor saxman and composer enjoyed a renaissance with 2002's well-received FOOTPRINTS LIVE and this collection of meticulously executed tunes. ALEGRIA recalls the Shorter of yore with its brainy, challenging arrangements and dexterous inside/outside musicianship. The opener "Sacajawea," for example, with its boogie rhythm and free-form solo explorations, gives ample evidence that Shorter and company mean business.
    As one would expect, the musicians here are superb, with bassist John Patitucci and drummer Brian Blade holding and pushing the rhythm. Young pianist Brad Mehldau, with his delicate, classical sensibility, replaces regular keyboardist Danilo Perez on "Serenata" and a radical reworking of the Miles Davis Quintet's "Orbits." Textures continue to shift and expand as Shorter employs cello, tuba, flute, oboe, and bassoon on cuts like the spectral "Vendiendo Alegria" and the puzzle-piece "12th Century Carol," while "She Moves Through the Fair" and "Capricorn II" prove he is adept as ever with small group telepathy. Superior playing, support and--most notably--writing and arranging mark this excellent disc by one of jazz's great post-'50s figures.
